is ready for Sassuolo

ROMA – Saturday will be over 279 days since the last match played by Javier Pastore with the Roma shirt. Nine months watching his teammates take the field without being able to give their contribution and feel like a footballer in all respects. But now Flaco is really ready, against Sassuolo he will finally have his space and will take the field to be able to have his say again.. Fonseca’s squad is reduced to the bone due to the many injuries (plus Villar’s disqualification) between midfield and the trocar, therefore an important window opens up for the Argentine who will certainly be involved by the Portuguese in the second half, also to give rest to the players who then five days later will have to take the field for the first leg of the quarter-finals of the Europa League. Pastore was not included in the Uefa list, one more reason to be employed on Saturday and give rest to the owners.

But how is Flaco physically? Well, indeed, very well. Because now the 31-year-old has really put all his chronic hip problems behind him thanks to the surgery he underwent on 11 August in Barcelona. After months of rehabilitation and personalized and individual training, Pastore is now ready to return to being a full-fledged footballer. And in training he is proving it great. The class has never lost it, only now it is proposing it again without feeling pain: heel shots, through passes with the rabona and played as a top player. Some of the younger players got their hands in their hair after a few hits.

Rome, Pastore is ready: he can take the field with Sassuolo

Pastore is ready, on Saturday he will have his chances to prove that he can be useful in the championship rotations until the end of the season. Then the future is sealed. Inevitably Javier will have to pack his bags in June because Roma have to remove 3.5 million net wages per season from their salaries, which they will receive for another two years. Pastore’s agent is moving around the world to find the best solution: polls have arrived from Qatar and the United States, but nothing concrete for the moment. The salary of the Argentine scares everyone, for this reason the Giallorossi club will release him for free while forced to lose value. Pastore’s unfortunate adventure at Roma is in the closing credits, he hopes to bid his farewell in the best possible way by playing some pieces of the match and trying to lend a hand to the club that has always been close to him in these difficult years.
